Over the years, Norton has been recognized as one of the leaders when it comes to providing good malware protection and extra privacy features in its software. The company has developed an active and well-populated database of cybersecurity threats and has been in the industry for 30 years now. One of its most sold packages in United Kingdom is the Norton Security Standard. The package is its mid-range product that offers protection against malware, viruses and identity theft at GBP 60 per year for a single device.
Antivirus software is as good as its navigation pane and fortunately, the Norton security standard comes with a very efficient and easy to use navigation pane that increases the overall functionality of the software. The navigation pane is tucked at the bottom and has a simple yet attractive design. With all functions running properly, all the icons in the navigation pane are green. Users have the ability to adjust settings in Norton Setup by just clicking on the respective icon.
The software comes with a number of ways to protect your PC. Of course! There are antivirus and malware scans that can be changed and schedules based on the user’s preference. It also has a history option that keeps an extensive record of scans and updates that have been carried out on the PC. The history is in a searchable format.
Apart from this, we also have identity protection and a password management feature onboard. The cherry on top is a password generator that generates passwords for the user in case you don’t want to fuss about it. The feature works in collaboration with the password manager.
